“Yoga is not a religion. It has no fixed set of beliefs. At the heart of yoga’s philosophy is that everything comes from within the SELF. Yoga is a system of techniques that can be used for: managing stress, learning to relax, and increasing limberness all the way to becoming more self-aware and acquiring the deepest knowledge of one’s own self. Regular daily practice of all parts of yoga produce a clear, bright mind and a strong, capable body”.
